Boston Dynamics’ Prancing Spot Bots Spread Holiday Cheer

To ring in the holiday spirit, folks at the Google-owned robotics company hitched three of its Spot bots to a sleigh, and then pranced through the business park laughing all the way. Sure, the antlers and Santa costume added a festive touch, but it’s tough to ignore the creepy, even terrifying, undertones coursing through this short clip.
